About Book

Small Town, Fife. Andy and Vicky were meant to be getting married tomorrow.

The trouble is, Andy's stag weekend was so epic, so legendary, that he didn't survive it. The finest pleasures that Amsterdam and Hamburg have to offer, together with a mile-high fling with a budget-airline stewardess, brought him down to earth with a bump. Now it's time for the post-mortem.

A black comedy about waking up to find the party's over, Gregory Burke's Hoors premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in May 2009.
